Subject Re: Help with task: Composite Oriented Programmiing with Apache Zest
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2016 01:05:10 GMT
One more thing; The "latest" version (i.e. 2.1) uses the old Qi4j namespace
and classes. We are working on 3.0 which will break compatibility and
introduce zest.apache.org namespace.

This is reflected in the documentation compiled at
http://zest.apache.org/java/develop/, as our main development branch is
named "develop" ("master" should refer to the most recent release).
